Revelation 10:1-11, NLT
The Angel and the Small Scroll
1Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, surrounded by a cloud, with a rainbow over his head. His face shone like the sun, and his feet were like pillars of fire.
4When the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write. But I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Keep secret*10:4 Greek Seal up. what the seven thunders said, and do not write it down.”
5Then the angel I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand toward heaven.
8Then the voice from heaven spoke to me again: “Go and take the open scroll from the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.”
9So I went to the angel and told him to give me the small scroll. “Yes, take it and eat it,” he said. “It will be sweet as honey in your mouth, but it will turn sour in your stomach!”
11Then I was told, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages, and kings.”
